I am in a development team with a few members, and we are all working locally which has been a big headache, we are now migrating to a shared repository, can anyone offer tips or point me to resources? thanks in advance
For a good presentation of the basics of the team repository and using it in a team development process, see the IBM redbook "VisualAge for Java Enterprise Version 2 Team Support", SG24-5245, from www.redbooks.ibm.com. (Enter the number in the search.) You can download the PDF file for free. The most obvious team repository feature added since this book was written is support for resource files. You will want to refer to the Team Programming PDF that Caroline mentioned (team.pdf in doc\pdf.zip) up-to-date information on the team repository. Also, Staunchfield and Mauny's Enterprise VAJ book has some discussion of team programming with VAJ.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
